Honorable Martin H. Kennelly, Mayor, submitted

Office of the Mayor

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 

Chicago : 

Gentlemen — I transmit herewith for your con- 
sideration letter dated July 12, 1950, from Mr. 
John McKinlay, Chairman of the Chicago Land

plan of the New York Life Insurance Company for

Mr. McKinlay requests passage of proposed ordi- 
nance approving the redevelopment plan and also

Dear Mayor Kennelly — It gives me great pleas- 
ure to transmit the redevelopment plan of the New 
York Life Insurance Company for the major part 
of Redevelopment Project No. 1. This plan was ap- 
proved by the Chicago Land Clearance Commission 
at an adjourned regular meeting held on June 29th,

The redevelopment plan transmitted herewith in- 
cludes the following documents:

COMMUNICATIONS, ETC.

(1) Letter of submission dated June 29, 1950, 
to the Chicago Land Clearance Commission from 
the New York Life Insurance Company by Otto L. 
Nelson, Vice President, 

(2) Document 1 — Site Plan 

( 3 ) Document 2 — Pavement Map 

(4) Document 3 — Zoning Map (On-Site) 

(5) Seven (7) Utility Layouts 

We also transmit Chicago Land Clearance Commis- 
sion Resolution No. 50-CLCC-43 approving the fore- 
going redevelopment plan, a proposed ordinance 
approving the redevelopment plan to be enacted by 
the City Council, and seven (7) proposed zoning 
ordinances to amend the Chicago Zoning Ordinance. 

A brochure is in the process of preparation which 
will make available to the aldermen and interested 
city officials in convenient form the redevelopment 
plan, the ordinances and detailed explanatory mate- 
rial. This will be submitted in the near future. 

The Commission is gratified that the plan for its 
first redevelopment project proposes such a distin- 
guished and noteworthy addition to the City of 
Chicago. The high standards incorporated in this 
project hold forth great promise for the future re- 
development of other blighted areas in our city. 
The "Plan of Chicago" prepared in 1908 by Daniel 
H. Burnham and Edward H. Bennett was the fore- 
runner and guide for city planning throughout the 
nation. Chicago's redevelopment program and this 
plan assert Chicago's leadership again, in the field 
of urban redevelopment. 

Approval of this plan by the City Council of the 
City of Chicago and enactment of the proposed 
zoning ordinances are hereby respectfully requested. 

Very truly yours, 

(Signed) John McKinlay, 

Chairman. 

On motion of Alderman Lancaster the foregoing 
communication, the redevelopment plan submitted 
therewith, the proposed ordinance for approval of 
the plan, and the resolution of the Chicago Land 
Clearance Commission were Referred to the Commit- 
tee on Housing, and the seven proposed ordinances 
(submitted with the foregoing communication) for 
amendment of the Chicago Zoning Ordinance were 
Referred to the Committee on Buildings and Zoning. 



It is my sincere hope that this report and the 
exhibits attached thereto may help to avoid a re- 
currence of such a catastrophe. 

Very truly yours, 

(Signed) Martin H. Kennelly, 

Mayor.

Proclamations of Honorable Martin H. Kennelly, 
Mayor (filed July 12, 1950), reading respectively as 
follows : 

Nurses Day in Chicago. 

Whereas, the second official Nurses Day Parade 
will be held in Chicago on the evening of July 14, 
1950, under the sponsorship of the Novena to Our 
Sorrowful Mother; and 

Whereas, this parade, in paying tribute to the 
women of the nursing profession, also calls public 
attention to the great demand for more trained 
nurses in this city and throughout the entire na- 
tion; and 

Whereas, through greatly increased hospital 
facilities and health services, nursing now offers 
to qualified young women unprecedented oppor- 
tunities for advancement in this most noble and 
humanitarian profession ; 

Now, therefore, I, Martin H. Kennelly, Mayor of 
the City of Chicago, do hereby proclaim Friday, 
July 14, 1950, as Nurses Day in Chicago, and 
urge the people of this city to lend their sup- 
port to the appropriate observance of this day and 
to the objectives for which it has been designated. 

Dated this 11th day of July, A. D. 1950. 

(Signed) Martin H. Kennelly, 

Mayor. 

German- American Day in Chicago. 

Whereas, the annual Outdoor Festival of the 
eighty-nine societies affiliated in the German Day 
Association will be held this year on Sunday, July 
16; and 

Whereas, our citizens of German ancestry, who 
number some 500,000 in Chicago, have contributed 
much to the growth and prosperity of our city and 
nation through their industry, good citizenship, 
and loyalty to American ideals and principles; and 

Whereas, our cultural life has also been enriched 
by the particular musical, literary, and other con- 
tributions of our citizens of German origin; 

Now, therefore, I, Martin H. Kennelly, Mayor of

the City of Chicago, do hereby proclaim Sunday,

Whereas, the traditional observance of Old Set- 
tlers' Day held each year on the first Monday in 
August, will be celebrated for the 76th consecutive 
time on August 7, 1950; and 

Whereas, the celebration will be highlighted 
as has been the custom for many years, by the 
presentation of eight gold medals to the oldest 
Chicago settlers present at the reunion; and 

Whereas, this celebration not only gives Chi- 
cago's older citizens the opportunity to come to- 
gether to renew old friendships and recall fond 
memories, but also reminds all citizens of the trib- 
ute due to the men and women of an earlier 
generation whose loyalty, courage, and labor con- 
tributed so greatly toward the creation and prog- 
ress of our city; 

Now, therefore, I, Martin H. Kennelly, Mayor of 
of the City of Chicago, do hereby proclaim Mon- 
day, August 7, 1950, as Old Settlers' Day in Chi- 
cago, and urge all Chicagoans to commemorate 
this occasion, honoring our city's pioneers and 
their achievements.

Part in 
Sponsor's Assurances 
In order to furnish the Administrator the 
Sponsor's Assurances required by the Act 
and the Regulations, the Sponsor hereby 
covenants and agrees with the United 
States, as follows: 

1. These covenants shall become effective 
upon acceptance by the Sponsor of an 
offer of Federal, aid for the Project or 
any portion thereof, made by the Admin- 
istrator, and shall constitute a part of the 
Grant Agreement thus formed. These 
covenants shall remain in full force and 
effect throughout the useful life of the 
facilities developed under the Project but 
in any event not to exceed twenty years 
from the date of said acceptance of an 
offer of Federal aid for the project. 

2. The Sponsor will operate the Airport as 
such for the use and benefit of the public. 
In furtherance of this covenant (but with- 
out limiting its general applicability and 
effect), the Sponsor specifically agrees 
that it will keep the Airport open to all 
types, kinds and classes of aeronautical 
use without discrimination between such 
types, kinds and classes; Provided, That 
the Sponsor may establish such fair, 
equal and non-discriminatory conditions 
to be met by all users of the Airport as 
may be necessary for the safe and effi- 
cient operation of the Airport; And Pro- 
vided Further, That the Sponsor may 
prohibit any given type, kind or class of 
aeronautical use of the Airport if such 
action will best serve the aeronautical 
needs of the area served by the Airport. 

3. The Sponsor will not exercise, grant or 
permit any exclusive right for the use of 
the Airport forbidden by Section 303 of 
the Civil Aeronautics Act of 1938, as 
amended. In furtherance of this covenant 
(but without limiting its general applica- 
bility and effect), the Sponsor specifically 
agrees that it will not either directly or 
indirectly exercise, or grant to any per- 
son, firm or corporation, or permit any 
persons, firm, or corporation to exercise, 
any exclusive right for the use of the 
airport for commercial flight operations, 
including air carrier transportation, 
rental of aircraft, conduct of charter 
flights, operation of flight schools or the 
carrying on of any other service or opera- 
tion requiring the use of aircraft. 

4. The Sponsor agrees that it will operate 
the Airport for the use and benefit of the 
public, on fair and reasonable terms and 
without unjust discrimination. In fur- 
therance of this covenant (but without 
limiting its general applicability and ef- 
fect), the Sponsor specifically covenants 
and agrees: 

(a) That in any agreement, contract, 
lease or other arrangement under 
which a right or privilege at the Air- 
port is granted to any person, firm, 
or corporation to render any service 
or furnish any part, materials or 
supplies (including the sale thereof) 
essential to the operation of aircraft 
at the Airport, the Sponsor will in- 
sert and enforce provisions requir- 
ing the contractor: 



(1) to furnish good, prompt and efli- 
cient service* adequate to meet 
all the demands for its service* 
at the Airport 

(2) to furnish said service* on a 
fair, equal and nondiscrimina- 
tory basis to all users thereof, 
and 

(3) to charge fair, reasonable and 
nondiscriminatory prices for each 
unit of sale or service*; Pro- 
vided, That the contractor may 
be allowed to make reasonable 
and nondiscriminatory discounts, 
rebates or other similar types of 
price reductions to volume pur- 
chasers. 

Note: *As used in these subsections 
the word "service" shall include fur- 
nishing of parts, materials and sup- 
plies (including sale thereof) as well 
as furnishing of service. 

(b) That it will not exercise or grant any 
right or privilege which would op- 
erate to prevent any person, firm, or 
corporation operating aircraft on the 
Airport from performing any services 
on its own aircraft with its own em- 
ployees (including, but not limited 
to, maintenance and repair) that it 
may choose to perform. 

(c) That if the Sponsor exercises any of 
the rights or privileges set forth in 
subsection (a) of this paragraph it 
will be bound by and adhere to the 
condition specified for contractors 
set forth in said subsection (a). 

5. Nothing contained herein shall be con- 
strued to prohibit the granting or exer- 
cise of an exclusive right for the furnish- 
ing of non-aviation products and supplies 
or any service of a non-aeronautical na- 
ture. 

6. The Sponsor will suitably operate and 
maintain the Airport and all facilities 
thereon or connected therewith which are 
necessary for airport purposes other than 
facilities owned or controlled by the 
United States, and will not permit any 
activity thereon which would interfere 
with its use for aeronautical purposes; 
Provided, That nothing contained herein 
shall be construed to require that the Air- 
port be operated and maintained for aero- 
nautical uses during temporary periods 
when snow, flood, or other climatic condi- 
tions interfere substantially with such 
operation and maintenance. Essential fa- 
cilities, including night lighting systems, 
when installed, will be operated in such a 
manner as to assure their availability to 
all users of the Airport. 

7. Insofar as is within its powers and rea- 
sonably possible, the Sponsor will prevent 
the use of any land either within or out- 
side the boundaries of the Airport in any 
manner (including the construction, erec- 
tion, alteration, or growth of any struc- 
ture or other object thereon) which would 
create a hazard to the landing, taking- 
off or maneuvering of aircraft at the Air- 
port, or otherwise limit the usefulness of 
the Airport. This objective will be ac- 
complished either by the adoption and

JOURNAI^-CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO

enforcement of a zoning ordinance and 
regulations or by the acquisition of ease- 
ments or other interests in lands or air- 
space, or by both such methods. With re- 
spect to land outside the boundaries of 
the Airport, the Sponsor will also remove 
or cause to be removed any growth, struc- 
ture, or other object thereon which 
would be a hazard to the landing, taking- 
off, or maneuvering of aircraft at the 
airport, or if such removal is not feasible, 
will mark or; light such growth, structure, 
or other object as an airport obstruction 
or cause it to be so marked or lighted. The 
Airport approach standards to be fol- 
lowed in performing the covenants con- 
tained in this paragraph shall be those 
established by the Administrator in Office 
of Airports Drawing No. 672 dated Sep- 
tember 1, 1946, unless otherwise author- 
ized by the Administrator. 

8. All facilities of the Airport developed 
with Federal aid and all those usable for 
the landing and taking-off of aircraft will 
be available to the United States at all 
times, without charge, for use by mili- 
tary and naval aircraft in common with 
other aircraft, except that if the use by 
military and naval aircraft is substantial, 

a reasonable share, proportional to such 
use, of the cost of operating and maintain- 
ing facilities so used, may be charged. 
The amount of use to be considered "sub- 
stantial" and the charges to be made 
therefor shall be determined by the Spon- 
sor and the using agency. 

9. Whenever so requested by the Adminis- 
trator, the Sponsor will furnish to any 
civil agency of the United States, without 
charge (except for light, heat, janitor 
service, and similar facilities and services 
at the reasonable cost thereof), such 
space in Airport buildings as may be de- 
termined by the Administrator to be rea- 
sonably adequate for use in connection 
with any airport air traffic control activi- 
ties, weather-reporting activities, and 
communications activities related to air- 
port air traffic control, which are neces- 
sary to the safe and efficient operation 
of the airport and which such agency 
may deem it necessary to establish and 
maintain at the airport for such 
purposes, provided, however, that the 
amounts of space the Sponsor may be 
required to furnish for such purposes 
and on such conditions, shall not be in 
excess of the maximum amounts pre- 
scribed in the Grant Agreement relating 
to the Project. Such space or any por- 
tion thereof will be made available as 
provided herein within six months after 
receipt of written request from the Ad- 
ministrator. Additional building space 
for such purposes may be furnished to 
any civil agency of the United States 
upon such terms as may be agreed upon 
between such civil agency and the Spon- 
sor. 

10. After completion of the Project and dur- 
ing the term of these covenants, the 
Sponsor will maintain a current system 
of Airport accounts and records, using a 
system of its own choice, sufficient to 
provide annual statements of income and 
expense. It will furnish the Administra- 



tor with such annual or special Airport 
financial and operational reports as he 
may reasonably request. Such reports 
may be submitted to the Administrator 
on forms furnished by him, or may be 
submitted in such other manner as the 
Sponsor elects, provided the essential data 
are furnished. The Airport and all air- 
port records and documents affecting the 
Airport, including deeds, leases, opera- 
tion and use agreements, regulations, and 
other instruments, will be available for 
inspection by any duly authorized repre- 
sentative of the Administrator upon rea- 
sonable request. The Sponsor will fur- 
nish to the Administrator, upon request 
a true copy of any such document. 

11. The Sponsor will not enter into any trans- 
action which would operate to deprive it 
of any of the rights and powers necessary 
to perform any or all of the covenants 
made herein, unless by such transaction 
the obligation to perform all such cove- 
nants is assumed by another public 
agency eligible under the Act and the 
Regulations to assume such obligations 
and having the power, authority and 
financial resources to carry out all such 
obligations. If an arrangement is made 
for management or operation of the air- 
port by any agency or person other than 
the Sponsor or an employee of the Spon- 
sor, the Sponsor will reserve sufficient 
powers and authority to insure that the 

Airport will be operated and maintained in 
accordance with the Act, the Regulations 
and these covenants. 

12. The Sponsor will maintain a master plan 
layout of the Airport having the current 
approval of the Administrator. Such lay- 
out shall show building areas, approach 
areas, and landing areas, indicating pres- 
ent and future proposed development. The 
Sponsor will conform to such master plan 
layout in making any future improve- 
ments or changes at the airport which, 
if made contrary to the master plan lay- 
out might adversely affect the safety, 
utility, or efficiency of the Airport. 

13. (a) The Sponsor will acquire within a 

reasonable time but in any event 
prior to the start of any construc- 
tion work under the Project, the fol- 
lowing property interests in the fol- 
lowing areas of land on which such 
construction work is to be per- 
formed, all of which lands are identi- 
fied on the property map which is 
attached hereto and identified as 
Exhibit "A":* 
(b) The Sponsor will acquire within a 
reasonable time and if feasible prior 
to the completion of all construction 
work under the Project, the follow- 
ing property interests in the follow- 
ing areas of land which are to be 
developed or used as part of or in 
connection with the Airport as it 
will be upon completion of the Proj- 
ect, all of which lands are identified 
on the property map which is at- 
tached hereto and identified as Ex- 
hibit "A":** 

14. If at any time it is determined by the 
Administrator that there is any outstand-

it is expected that there will be such encum- 
brances or adverse interests, they should be 
specified and the title described as title in 
fee, subject only to such named encum- 
brances or adverse interests. Similarly 
where the Sponsor is to acquire some lesser 
property interest, such interest should be

partment, to be furnished by Ralph H. 
Burke, Airport Consultant and shall therein 
make provision to execute the provisions 
hereinafter set forth in Section 6 ; and shall 
therein provide that such project reports as 
shall be required by the Civil Aeronautics 
Administration or the Department, shall be 
prepared and forwarded to the Department 
by such project engineer, except that the 
Municipality shall further provide therein 
that Ralph H. Burke, Airport Consultant 
shall render a semi-final and a final inspec- 
tion report on the project work (or, if more 
than one construction contract is involved, 
then on each phase of the project work 
which is covered by separate contract) to 
the Department, and in conjunction with 
such final inspection report or reports shall 
certify to the Department and to the Munici- 
pality that the work involved has been fully 
completed in accordance with the plans, 
specifications, and contract, as the same 
shall have been modified or supplemented 
by change order, supplementary contract, or 
otherwise, and that such work is accepted. 
6. The Municipality hereby designates the De- 
partment as its agent, and the Department 
hereby accepts said designation to act as 
Agent for the Municipality : 

(a) To exercise such overall supervision and 
direction of the project work as its 
personnel will permit, provided that in 
exercising said supervision and direc- 
tion of the project work neither the 
Department nor the State shall be held 
responsible or be chargeable for any 
damage resulting from performance or 
or attempted performance of said 
project work or for any other cause or 
reason. 

(b) To accept, receive, receipt for and dis- 
burse in the manner and to the extent 
hereinafter set forth, any funds granted 
to the Municipality by the United States 
under the Federal Airport Act in aid 
of said project. 

(c) To endorse and deliver to the Munici- 
pality, without recourse, all warrants 
issued by the United States in aid of 
said project pursuant to this agree- 
ment. 

7. The Municipality shall be a signatory party, 
in its own name, stead, right, and behalf, to 
the Project Application made or to be made 
to the Civil Aeronautics Administration, to 
the Acceptance of such Grant Offer as shall 
be tendered by the United States, through 
the Civil Aeronautics Administration to 
such Grant Agreement as shall be executed. 

8. The estimated total of construction cost for 
said project is $2,340,000. The Department 
will and does hereby with the approval of 
the Governor, allocate and make available 
to said project, for payment of such costs 
as are not barred by Section 34 of the Illi- 
nois Aeronautics Act, from funds appropri- 
ated to The Department for such purposes, 
a sum in the maximum amount of one mil- 
lion one hundred seventy thousand dollars 
($1,170,000), or fifty per cent (50%) of 
actual construction costs on the basis of the 
unit prices to be established by the accepted 
bid, whichever amount shall be the lower, 
subject to releases to be issued from time 
to time by the Director of Finance, State of 



Illinois, based upon bids received and con- 
tract (s) let and upon such change orders 
as may be issued pursuant and subsequent 
thereto, up to said maximum amount. On 
the basis of the Tentative Allocation issued 
by the Civil Aeronautics Administration it 
is expected that a Grant Offer from the 
United States will be tendered in the ap- 
proximate amount of $1,170,000. Accord- 
ingly, it is estimated that the share of the 
Municipality in the estimated project con- 
struction costs will be approximately nil. 
However, the Municipality specifically ^ 
agrees that in any event it will pay on 
project construction costs any amount by 
which the total of actual project construc- 
tion costs may and shall exceed the sum of 
the State funds as are herein committed and 
the Federal funds granted to or allowed 
and paid on project construction costs, as 
the same may be incurred by reason of con- 
tingencies, overruns, engineering errors, or 
otherwise in order to complete the work 
called for by the project Grant Agreement 
with the United States and the project Plans 
and Specifications, as the same may, with 
the express consent and approval of the 
Municipality, to be amended changed, modi- 
fied or supplemented — subject, however, and 
only, to the limitation as to revenue raising 
and restrictions on bonded indebtedness im- 
posed by State statute and constitution. 

9. The Municipality will, within the limitations 
of its project financial obligation immediate- 
ly hereinabove set forth, upon request of 
the Department, deposit with the Depart- 
ment such funds as it shall from time to 
time determine to be necessary for applica- 
tion and disbursement on project construc- 
tion costs and expenses; such funds so 
deposited shall in turn be deposited with the 
State Treasurer to the account of said proj- 
ect to be held in trust and disbursed on 
and for project construction costs and ex- 
penses in accordance with State fiscal pro- 
cedure. 

^10. The Municipality agrees to comply at all 
times with the conditions prescribed in the 
second proviso of said Section 34 with re- 
spect to which the Municipality is required 
to satisfy the Department under the terms 
thereof. 

11. The airport shall be used, operated and 
maintained at all times by the Municipality 
for the use and benefit of the general public 
without unjust discrimination, in accord- 
ance with all applicable Federal and State 
Laws and the rules and regulations pre- 
scribed thereunder and in accordance with 
the covenants and assurances of the Munic- 
ipality made with and to the United States. 

12. The Municipality shall file with the Depart- 
ment such reports concerning the matters 
covered by this agreement, including the 
use, operation and maintenance of the air- 
port, as the Department may require from 
time to time. 

13. Notices, reports or other communications 
required by or transmitted pursuant to this 
agreement to the Department shall be di- 
rected to the attention of the Director of 
Aeronautics, Department of Aeronautics, 
State of Illinois, Capital Airport, Spring- 
field, Illinois.

agreed to accept the sum of $650.00 in full settle- 
ment in this action, of which sum the City and the 
insurer for the contractor will each pay $325.00. 

The premises are improved with a one-story 
frame cottage with a concrete basement used for 
residential purposes. The Dearborn Street Subway 
was constructed by open cut in the alley west and 
south of Milwaukee Avenue and adjoining this 
property. Due to the proximity of the excavation, 
the building settled 2-1/6 inches, resulting in 
cracked plaster walls, broken water pipes, broken 
glass and window frames. W. Gibbons Uffendell, 
building cost analyst for the City of Chicago, has 
examined the premises and the building inspection 
reports and has estimated the cost and expense 
incurred due to subway construction. His report is 
attached hereto. 

We have discussed this matter with Virgil E. 
Gunlock, Commissioner of Subways and Superhigh- 
ways, and he joins in our recommendation that the 
proposed settlement receive your favorable con- 
sideration. We are attaching his letter of recom- 
mendation. 

We respectfully recommend that the Acting 
Corporation Coimsel be authorized to have a judg- 
ment entered against the City of Chicago in the 
simi of $325.00 in accordance with the proposed 
settlement, said sum to be paid from Account No.

lowing Section 27-38 a new section to be numbered 
27-38.1, reading as follows: 

27-38.1. Streetcar Speed Restrictions, (a) No 
person shall operate a streetcar upon any public 
way in this city at a speed greater than is reason-

the use of the way or so as to endanger the life 
or limb or injure the property of any person. 

(b) If the rate of speed of any streetcar oper- 
ated upon any business street or residential street 
in this city exceeds twenty-five (25) miles an 
hour, or if the rate of speed of any streetcar upon 



any other street in this city exceeds thirty-five 
(35) miles an hour, such rates of speed shall be 
prima facie evidence that the person operating 
such streetcar is running at a rate of speed 
greater than is reasonable and proper having 
regard to the traffic and use of the way or so as 
to endanger the life or limb or injure the prop- 
erty of any person. 

(c) The fact that the speed of a streetcar is 
lower than the foregoing prima facie limits shall 
not relieve the operator thereof from the duty to 
decrease speed when approaching and crossing 
an intersection, when approaching and going 
around a curve, when traveling upon any narrow 
or winding roadway, or when special hazard 
exists with respect to pedestrians or other traffic 
or by reason of weather or street conditions, and 
speed shall be decreased as may be necessary to 
avoid colliding with any person or vehicle, on or 
entering upon a public way in compliance with 
legal requirements and the duty of all persons to 
use due care. 

(d) Whenever the commissioner of streets and 
electricity, as authorized in section 39 of this 
chapter, shall determine and declare a reasonable 
and safe prima facie speed limit upon any public 
way or portion thereof other than that provided 
in subsection (b) hereof and shall erect appro-

The following is the resolution as adopted: 

Whereas, The City Council of the City of Chi- 
cago is aware that a shortage of rental housing 
accommodations exists in this city which necessi- 
tates the continuance of rent control ; and 

Whereas^ This Council is not unmindful of the 
fact that rent control in the face of rising taxes 
and increased cost of maintenance has imposed 
severe hardship and financial difficulties on many 
landlords in this city, particularly on owners of 
small rental units; and 

Whereas, The Chicago Rent Director after con- 
sultation with the Housing Expediter has advised 
Mayor Kennelly that the office of Housing Ex- 
pediter is developing procedures so that landlords 
may obtain prompt and adequate adjustments to 
compensate for increases in operating costs; that 
the Chicago Rent Office is simplifying and stream- 
lining its procedures, under National Office direc- 
tion, to grant rent increases to small landlords with 
a minimum of delay; that the Chicago Office has 
added to its force landlord-tenant consultants 
whose function, among other things, is to assist 
small landlords in asserting their rights under rent 
control and to hold neighborhood clinics in which 
small landlords may present their problems to the 
rent officials and receive prompt "on the spot" 
settlement of rent problems; now therefore, 

Be It Resolved by the City Council of the City 
of Chicago^ That the Chicago Rent Director and 
the Housing Expediter alleviate the sufferings and 
hardships of small landlords and to secure for 
them equitable adjustments in the rentals of their 
housing units. 



persons in the City of Chicago, which emergency 
has been created by war, the effects of war and 
the aftermath of hostihties; that such emergency 
has necessitated the intervention of the Federal 
government in order to prevent speculative, unwar- 
ranted and abnormal increases in rent; that such 
emergency has produced an acute shortage in 
dwellings by a diversion and reservation of essen- 
tial materials and manpower needed successfully 
to prosecute the war; that the Federal law pur- 
suant to which rents in buildings have heretofore 
been regulated and controlled by its terms expired 
on the thirtieth day of June, nineteen hundred 
fifty; and 

Whereas, A bill was enacted at the 2nd session 
of the 81st Congress, (Public Law 574) effective 
July 1, 1950, which amended the Housing and Rent 
Act of 1947, as amended; that the said bill 
amended Section 4 (e) and Section 204 (a) of the 
Housing and Rent Act of 1947, as amended; by 
striking out "June 30, 1950" and inserting in lieu 
thereof "June 30, 1951", and amended Section 204 
(f) of the same Act to read in part as follows: 

"(f) (1) The provisions of this title, except 
section 204 (a) shall cease to be in effect at the 
close of December 31, 1950, except that they 
shall cease to be in effect at the close of June 

30, 1951— 

"(A) in any incorporated city, town or village 
which, at a time when maximum rents under this 
title are in effect therein, and prior to, December 

31, 1950, declares (by resolution of its govern- 
ing body adopted for that purpose, or by popu- 
lar referendum, in accordance with local law) 
that a shortage of rental housing accommoda- 
tions exists which requires the continuance of 
rent control in such city, town or village ; * * *" ; 

Now, Therefore, Be It Resolved by the City 
Council of the City of Chicago, Illinois, That for 
the purposes of the said Act we declare that a 
shortage of rental housing accommodations exists 
in the City of Chicago which requires the continu- 
ance of rent control in this city; and 

Be It Further Resolved, That the City Clerk be, 
and he is hereby directed to transmit a copy of 
this Preamble and Resolution, duly certified, to 
the Housing Expediter, Washington, D. C.

effectuate the resolution.

made to give small landlords prompt and careful 
consideration of their rental problems including 
fair and equitable adjustments.

Proposal for Designation of Committee to Rec- 
ommend Security Measures for Chicago — Referred. 

Honorable Martin H. Kennelly, Mayor, submitted 
the following communciation, which was Referred to 

the Committee on Finance: 

Office of the Mayor 
City of Chicago 

July 26, 1950. 

To the Honorable^ the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — Since the last meeting of the City 
Council, the seriousness of the war situation in 
Korea has prompted President Truman to alert the 
country to the necessity of taking every precaution 
to guard against sabotage and espionage. In view 
of the critical importance of these two phases of 
the situation, I request that the City Council take 
immediate steps to participate in the necessary 
preparations to safeguard the security of our City. 
It is essential that no time be lost in bringing all 
security measures up to date and making them as 
complete as possible. 

Certain steps have already been taken. The Hon- 
orable Oscar E. Hewitt, Commissioner of Public 
Works, is taking steps to insure the continued safe- 
ty of public installations vital to the security, wel- 
fare and health of the City and its people, including 
the thorough screening of employees. All other 
department heads are cooperating to take neces- 
sary safeguards, many of which will probably re- 
quire appropriation of funds by the City Council. 



I respectfully suggest that you give considera- 
tion to the designation or establishment of a 
committee to plan and recommend whatever action 
is necessary to insure the continued security of our 
City. 

Very truly yours, 

(Signed) Martin H. Kennelly, 

Mayor.
